    Im cool with and hopeing so bad that monks will be fotm next patch. I rarely see any monks in pvp, so any new ones will have a shit load to catch up gear wise and how to play. Ive mained one since release stuck with it, so the gear I got will pay off.

    Mages currently revolve completely around deep -> blanket to score kills. If deep breaks on damage and blanket is removed from the game, the only way to score kills will be to drain peoples health, which Frost mages aren't exactly good at. Fire isn't that great either currently.

    To be fair your original comment was badly written, I understood it that you were saying both Rogues and Mages were getting buffs.

    I thought I'd write something about mages, but it's been said already.

    Play Frost Mage and be happy that it is FotE in PvP.

    They are limited to their comp, mages to be specific, to be good. They are good overall, but i wouldn't say stronger than mages or anything like OP. Just because they won't get nerfed(again) doesn't mean they will be OP. Maybe, just maybe, they might already be balanced?

    Anyway, their offheals and psyfiend are already nerfed and people are starting to use tendrils instead of psyfiend because of how shit it is now. Dies from 1 attack, can be outranged before it gets it's cast off etc. Really they are only strong because of their utility, not dmg or cc.

    On topic, i think that the monk and rogue buffs will be interesting to see how they turn out, but i don't think they'll turn OP, they'll just end up being strong specs, but we'll see.

    Why are rogues getting buffs? I remember a blue post saying rogues were where they should be and other classes were too strong.

    /endsarcasm
    Why is there no "Demonhunter" hero class yet? He was only the coolest hero in WC3. Get busy Blizzard.

    Except that Reckful was playing Rogue on PTR and getting 80k crits with Ambush, which you can apparently spam 6 times back to back. Agree on Monk, though. All that said, it is PTR, and things will change. This first patch is Blizz's typical knee-jerk reaction with way overcompensating one direction or the other. Hopefully they'll balance it out between now and release.

    Would you prefer they left Rogues alone? I remember reading that blue post as well, and Blizz will be the first to tell you that they frequently make mistakes and/or change their mind. Yet, people rip on them for sticking to their guns, and then rip on them when they change their mind on the state of balance and give players what they were asking for.

    no, you can buy the maleevolent epic pvp gear for free on ptr, its better than the starting pve gear.

    though, not everyone knows this on the ptr as it starts you in blue gear, so there are some people running around in blue gear.
